The longest-running photography event in Southeast Asia, the annual Angkor Photo Festival and Workshops is in its twelfth year. Taking place from 3-10 December this year, it is a free international platform and educational resource for established and emerging photographers.
Call for Submissions for the Festival Programme
The organisers wish to announce a new addition to the programming this year. As the landscape of storytelling has evolved with digital technology, they are now accepting multimedia submissions for all categories.
Programme Coordinator, Françoise Callier says, “When the right balance between photography, video and audio is found, the strength of the testimony can be further revealed in a more spirited way”.
There are two submission categories. The ‘Open’ category accepts work on all topics and issues, and the ‘The Impact Project’ seeks stories on individuals, groups, or small organisations working to make a difference in Cambodia.
Submission is free and open to all nationalities.
Submission Deadline: 5pm (GMT+7), June 15, 2016.
